Everyone needs to do the right thing so everyone can enjoy the smart motorway’s benefits. Luckily, it’s easy to be a smart driver. Here’s what to do:
The smart motorway will include two smart emergency stopping areas. As Kevin explains, each areas will have a sensor, a camera, and a phone which will connect straight to the Wellington Traffic Operations Centre.
Ramp signals are a set of traffic lights which switch from red to green and vice versa quickly allowing vehicles to merge smoothly and safely to the traffic already flowing on the highway. They will be installed at the end of State Highway 2 on-ramp at Ngauranga. The ramp signals will be switched on during peak traffic.
